no rudder/nose wheel steering on take-off

Recommended Posts

No CTD's so far, guess I'm lucky. Every now and then the system freezes/hangs though, but recovers after a few seconds. Installed the latest hotfix. Problem on take-off: can't keep the aircraft on the centerline, it won't react on my rudder pedals at all! I checked with the "system screen" on the lower CDU and they were/are working all right. Anybody? I use FSUIPC but without the calibration. For everything else: I'm still smiling flying this one (and looking around in the cockpit), great! Greetings, Ype Reitsma

Have you checked the assignments are correct and there are no conflicting assignments? Have you checked all hydraulics are on, and yaw damper is on?

Use FCUIPC for calibration and axis assignations. It's far better than FS. Make sure that you delete all assignations in the FS control setup.

Thanks for the responses! I dived in FSUIPC for another time and yes, I had overlooked something: there was a conflict with the rudder assignment! Works perfect now. I used to calibrate through FSUIPC but PMDG advised in the intro-document for the NGX to calibrate with the configprogs of the hardware and use the "send to FS" assignment in FSUIPC.So no calibration of the flying controls in FSUIPC no more. Still quite responsive. Only axes I calibrate in FSUIPC are the gear lever and the reverser (prop and mixture levers) of my yoke. Ype Reitsma
